trouvée: a winter wonderland

Do you sense a theme? This was part of a group of four photographs I found, dating to the 1910s. They must have come from the same album (I promise to show you the other three in time). Whoever the photographer was, he or she had an eye for the picturesque ~ I love the tunnel of trees, and three little figures in the center. {click to view larger}

A few things today:

* Lightning Fields
* 100 abandoned houses (via Abby)
* and Jane Waggoner Deschner

One to two feet of snow is on its way to Washington. Time to hunker down. Stay warm and safe, wherever you are. Cheers!

Thank you all! I am snug and warm at home, just watching the snow pile up. It is really rather beautiful.

What a lovely image! The snow is covering half our windows now...but so far we are warm and snug.
